The 2020 Cannabis Vexpo Africa kicked on 26 November and will run until 28 November. Over 1,000 visitors were registered, live presentations and panel discussions were enthusiastically attended, and records were broken.
The largest number of unique visitors and exhibitors to attend an African related virtual cannabis event was accomplished, and organisers are expecting the visitor numbers to double each day going forward.

The lineup is packed with live panel discussions and presentations from cannabis experts, leaders and changemakers from around the world. See the full lineup here

“Our first day was a good learning curve and a great launch. We have established a fantastic platform and we are looking forward to the next two days of the event.”
